Welcome to the Metal Gear Solid 3 Collectible Guide!
This guide is going to cover every Kerotan, animal, plant, weapon, camo and face paint location in the order that they appear.
During this play-through, you’re going to want to make sure you do not kill any one. That includes bosses. You will need to use non lethal weapons against the bosses. This can be done on any difficulty.
There are Trophies/Achievements for killing enemies, but this can be manipulated. Save your game, get the kill related Trophies/Achievements and then load your save to wipe away the kills.
The guide below is written on very easy difficulty to make collecting everything required as easy as possible.
The following weapons will be automatically acquired at various points in the story:
- Survival Knife
- Directional Mic
- Single Action Army
- EZ Gun
- Play on Very Easy or collect all plants and animals on higher difficulties.

- Dremuchij South
Mushroom C – Retrieve your gear from the tree and then crawl back under the log and look at the base of the tree to your immediate right to see this mushroom.
Mushroom A – Continue right to find another fallen log. Look for this mushroom growing on the fallen logs.
Frog B – This small green frog can be found in the patch of grass near where Mushroom C was. It’s hard to see, so look carefully for grass moving as it crawls around.
Snake H – This is on the ground just behind the log where the previous mushroom was found.
Fruit B / D Medicine – This is hanging from the tree in the same area as the previous mushroom and snake.
Kerotan #1 – Go over to the east side of the area and there will be a path that heads up. Go up and then look left to find the first Kerotan.
Snake G – This is found in the grass around the tree that you climbed to retrieve your gear.
- Dremuchij Swampland
Indian Gavial – These are out in the open in and around the swamp. You’ll need to put one to sleep and then use your knife to kill it.
Bird D – This bird will fly around the swamp and land on a branch on the tree in the middle of the swamp.
Hornet’s Nest / Ointment – This is found hanging from the tree in the middle of the swamp.
Kerotan #2 – Exit the swamp and head through the grass. This will be on your right just before exiting to the next area.
- Dremuchij North
SVD – As soon as you enter the area go to the right to find an area tucked away. The SVD can be found back here.
Bird E – This bird will be on the ground in the patch of grass where the first enemy you encounter is patrolling. It’ll fly away if you get too close or miss your shot. Look at the grass to see it moving. Shoot it when it comes into view. If it flies away, exit back to the swamp and then reenter this area and it’ll be in the grass again.
Fruit C – This is found hanging in the tree above where you found Bird E. It may look similar to Fruit B, but they are different.
Fruit A – Head forward from where you collected Fruit C and there will be a tree ahead of you next to an open tree stump. There will be three of these red fruit hanging.
Grenade – This is found inside of the tree stump to the left of the previous fruit.
Kerotan #3 – Go to the right and head down into an open grassy area to find this Kerotan sitting on top of a tree stump.
Beekeeper – As soon as you enter this area, shoot the hornet nest and the hornets will chase the guard away.
Kerotan #4 – This is found on the top of the left bridge pillar.
XM16E1 – Go across the bridge and then head down to the left at the other end. Lean up against the wall and shimmy over to a small cave under the bridge to find this weapon.
Kerotan #5 – This is found by looking through a hole in the wall underneath a set of stairs on the left side of the area.
M37 – This is found by a stack of crates opposite of the previous Kerotan hole in the wall.
Problem Solved, Series Over – After the cutscene with Ocelot, save your game. Then, kill him. After you get the Trophy/Achievement, re-load your save and continue on with the game.
